Facebook seeks to revolutionize the enterprise collaboration market
Enterprise collaboration tools are not new: For almost a decade, Enterprise 2.0 technologies have sought to foster employee collaboration. But with the debut of Facebook's Workplace, will the social platform of choice for 1 billion users conquer the enterprise collaboration market? The social media giant certainly faces challenges: The beta version of Workplace was not without its drawbacks, and businesses already have numerous options for social software. In this issue of CIO Decisions, we talk to analysts, beta users and CIOs about Facebook's big business play and whether Workplace will deliver on its promises to enhance employee collaboration. Elsewhere in this issue, the CIO of Shutterstock discusses his company's shift to a software-defined data center, and New Balance executives discuss why lockstep cooperation between business and IT is integral to the company's success.
